You should love what you do

Assalamualaikum wbt..

 This morning daycare drop off got me thinking pulling my scarf out.

For one, the teacher is really frustrating me and she is really not making this wonderful daycare pleasant for me in the mornings. 

1) She questioned (a month ago) why Aulia' only naps 1.5 to 2 hours? She complained to me that she is the first to wake up and doesn't get back to sleep and ends up waking up other kids (A: not my problem, she naps great at home and B: how LONG you want her to nap?)

2) This morning she had the nerve to tell me that I need to let the daycare know when Aulia' is sick and what she has. (A: I called the daycare the morning I kept fer from daycare and B: The next day when I brought her in I told the teacher that she was sick with HFMD, but not contagious.). She then (and I quote) said "This is the first I have heard about HFMD).. FOR REAL??? omg. You work in a daycare and you have NO information about HFMD?

Needless to say, we will be looking into a new daycare, there is actually a daycare closer to our home but the same owner! Worst case, I'll send my child to my sister's.

Which gets me to the title of this post..I truly don't think she (the daycare teacher) loves what she does. I see she get frustrated with crying babies sometimes. I think she gets off at down talking to me and just isn't happy-go-lucky like the other teachers at the previous daycare. If you don't like what you do..get a new job!

Until we find a new daycare, I need to learn to speak my mind and put this teacher in her place, With the hfmd situation I was little more stern about standing my ground. But I do wish I would have questioned her lack of knowledge. 

I personally need to love what I do, also. I need to stand my ground as a Mom. I hate leaving a situation and feeling like I should have said more. Then I end up calling my husband and venting it all out for him. (Love you B!)

Here's to speaking our minds, doing everything possible for our kids and leaving any given situation with a smile on our face, be patient and knowing that we stood up for ourselves!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
